Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this comic book-based sci-fi vampire story has strong fantasy violence, especially in the graphically gory animated title sequence; it also has monster attacks, fighting, and weapons. The movie crams together bits and pieces of vampire lore, bleak futuristic imagery, and Western elements, as well as a negative attitude toward too-powerful organized religion. There's some brief sexual innuendo and one use of "f--k," though language in general is infrequent.

Sexual Content

Some slight sexual innuendo. A teen girl returns from "town" with the top button of her dress undone. Other characters discreetly discuss possible sexual encounters that may have occurred in the past.

Violence

Strong fantasy violence, with monster and vampire attacks, fighting, explosions, guns and shooting, knives and stabbing, plus other fantasy-type weapons. While the blood in most of the movie isn't overwhelming, an animated title sequence features extremely heavy gore. Plus, a vampire attacks a human and sucks his blood dry (he leaves the human with some white foam coming out of his mouth). And in another scene, a vampire seemingly pulls a man's heart out of his chest.

Language

"F--k" is heard once; other language is also infrequent but includes "s--t," "goddamn," "son of a bitch," and "hell."

Social Behavior

The movie's futuristic world as a whole is so depressing that kids are unlikely to come away with much hope. However, the main character doesn't really exhibit much problematic behavior; he appears to be a loner, but he does successfully team up with others, and together they manage to solve a large problem. But he's forced to disobey his superiors to rescue a family member and to help save humanity. The movie also takes a dismal view of powerful organized religion.
